A "Factual, False News (minus the Reality) Response" from Gil "Broken Deal Cedillo" regarding the GROWING Lincoln Heights Measure HHH Scandal

As the Lincoln Heights Community UNIFIES against the proposed SCANDALOUS misuse of Measure HHH Bond Money, to develop five Parking Lots into "Mixed-Housing", CD-1 City Clowncilman Gil "Broken Deal Cedillo" engages in a "Factual, False News (minus the Reality) Retort" ........., while Project Opponents raise money for a Legal Battle. 
Will Mayor Eric Garetti and City Attorney Mike Feuer intervene to protect CD-1 Clowncilman Broken Deal Cedillo (and themselves) from MAJOR legal exposure, for their mutual misuse of Measure HHH Bond Money? 
** Blogger's Notes: Memo to Mayor Eric "#YogaPantsforPresident2020" Garcetti, City Attorney Mike "AB-109 Co-author" Feuer and CD-1 City Clowncil Central Committee Member Gil "Broken Deal Cedillo", no amount of "Factual, False News Retorts (minus the REALITY of your Backroom Dealings)", is going to blunt the GROWING backlash to your targeting of the Lincoln Heights Community for the SCANDALOUS misuse of Measure HHH Bond Money. Its obvious from CD-1 Clowncilman Broken Deal Cedillo's "Factual, False News Word Play (posted below, with the REALITY provide by us at Mayor Sam)", recently posted on his Website, that the formerly "One Bill Gil" is cognizant of his role in the 21st Century Version of the successful Boyle Heights Battle against a proposed Prison in the 1980s. Indeed decades later, some who were a part of the 1980s Prison Battle, are now now joining with a younger generation of budding activists (with modern tools for organizing and fund raising), to confront a SCANDALOUS City Hall Scheme .........., that should disqualify the likes of Mayor Garcetti, City Attorney Feuer and "Broken Deal Cedillo" from seeking Higher Office-----Scott Johnson.
FALSE NEWS: The Councilmember is trying to push housing in Lincoln Heights.
FACT: The RFQ/P was issued by the CAO in July 2016, and the recommendations from the panel were made to Council in December 2016. The Councilmember intervened because there was no community input process. A link to the staff report is here: http://clkrep.lacity.org/onlinedocs/2016/16-0600-s145_rpt_CAO_11-18-2016.pdf
REALITY: Photo (below), LA Streetblog and Patrick Range McDonald begs to differ.
October, 2016 Lincoln Heights Parking Lot Press Conference with CD 1 City Councilman Gil Cedillo

FALSE NEWS: Parking will be taken away to build housing!
FACT: The five Lincoln Heights parking lots include a total of 290 parking spaces. This project requires the replacement of public parking spaces on a one-to-one basis.
Total loss of parking = 0.
REALITY: Replacement parking where?
Five Lincoln Heights Parking Lots designated for development via Measure HHH. 

FALSE NEWS: The Councilmember is going to build housing only for the homeless.
FACT: The Council Member does not support placing an overconcentration of one type of housing in a single location. The Councilmember believes in building communities with a mix of housing options serving a range of incomes. Lincoln Heights will not have an overconcentration of housing serving people formerly experiencing homelessness. The Councilmember’s vision is a mixed-income housing neighborhood, with not only permanent supportive housing, but a combination of affordable, workforce and market-rate housing.
REALITY: CD-1 City Councilman Gil "Broken Deal Cedillo", with the APPROVAL of Mayor Eric "#PresidentYogaPants2020" Garcetti, are defrauding City of LA Property Owners via their BLATANT, scandalous misuse of Measure HHH Bond Money. From Patrick Range McDonald;
City officials are currently sorting through the proposals for projects that will make up the AHOS program. With complete certainty, permanent supportive housing will not be built at every city-owned property — five sites in Lincoln Heights, which is represented by Councilman Gil Cedillo, have already been designated for “mixed-income” housing.  As a result, the city’s use of Measure HHH money for the AHOS program will not go entirely to homeless housing, and homeless men, women, and children will not receive the full amount of housing and services that Mayor Eric Garcetti and the City Council had promised. Instead, an affluent professional, the only person who can afford market-rate housing in L.A., may land a nice pad on city-owned property in increasingly gentrified Lincoln Heights or near the beach on the Westside. It’s the very definition of a scandal.

FALSE NEWS: The Councilmember is going to build 5,000 units of homeless housing in Lincoln Heights.
FACT: The CAO report states that the developments across 12 sites citywide [CD1 (5 sites), CD7, CD8, CD11 (4 sites), and CD15] are recommended to account for 500 units total.
[500 units ÷ 12 sites = 42 average units per development]
REALITY: Did the Motion (pictured below) via "Broken Deal Cedillo", remove the Five Lincoln Heights Parking Lots from consideration for development (or was this a Campaign Facade)?
January, 2017 (before March/July, 2017 CD-1 City Council Elections) Motion that would REMOVE the five Lincoln Heights Parking Lots from consideration for Measure HHH Development.

FALSE NEWS: The Councilmember is moving forward with no community input.
FACT: The Councilmember halted the project because there was no community input, and agreed to move forward only after a strong community input component was required of the development team. The opportunity for community input must/will happen once the development team signs the ENA. 
REALITY: But to paraphrase "Broken Deal Cedillo's" Chief of Staff Arturo Chavez .........., 
............, this project (with former CD-1 City Councilman Ed Reyes benefiting, allegedly), WILL GO THROUGH (BTW Arturo, did Mayor Eric Garcetti Staffer Barbara Romero concur with your comment made at the RECENT Taylor Yard Event?).
